University Overview

Washington College partners with Université Grenoble Alpes.  The tuition only exchange program is based in Grenoble which is the capital of the French Alps.

The City of Grenoble

 Historically, Grenoble is where the French Revolution germinated and where Napoleon returned from his exile on the Isle of Elbe. On a lighter side, Grenoble is a beautiful city surrounded by mountain ranges which offer alpine skiing in the winter and over 4000 km of trails for hikers in the summer. The city is conveniently located 537 km from Paris, 331 km from Nice, 100 km from Lyon, 145 km from Geneva, and 240 km from Turin while also at an important crossroads to Italy and Switzerland.


Classes will be taught in French by UGA faculty members. The exchange student advising is done by the Service for European and International Relations.


The Office of Housing for University Exchanges helps exchange students find suitable accommodations in and around Grenoble. Most students find it more affordable to share an apartment with other UGA students.
